I Sense a Parable in This

Butter Bust of Obama Takes to Chicago Streets

If you see a yellow-ish sculpture of a man’s head rolling through the Loop Friday afternoon, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you: It really is a bust of President Barack Obama made of butter.

The butter head stars in the latest performance art project from Industry of the Ordinary, helmed by Chicagoans-via-England Adam Brooks and Mathew Wilson as a way to trigger response to pop culture and art. (Locals might remember Brooks and Wilson for the ice sculpture of the Ten Commandments they carted down Michigan Avenue in 2005 en route to the Art Institute of Chicago.)

Icons created in butter?

History tells us they rarely end up well.

Remember my post on Big Butter Jesus?

Yup. “Bolts of lightening” can take all sorts of earthly forms.

    Does this mean he’s headed for toast?

    Quite ironic for a guy that want to force everyone to eat peas and arugula.

    Obviously this means he’s won the Princess Kay of the Milky Way Peace Prize.

    If it wasn’t rancid before it was sculpted it surely is now.
